4-H Youth Development

Head - Heart - Hands - Health

4-H encourages diverse groups of youth to develop their unique skills and talents to the fullest potential. Young people participate in 4-H through clubs, special interest groups, after-school programs, camps, and many other activities. “Learning by doing” through hands-on activities and community involvement empowers 4-H’ers to develop and strengthen life skills. 4-H is a family affair. This includes the parent-child relationship and the extended family of community and state. It is a unique blend of government, private business, and volunteers working together to broaden the horizons of Fayette County’s young people.
